We’re teaming up with fellow food bloggers and healthy eating advocates to host a Healthy Every Week Challenge, a month-long initiative to develop healthy eating habits. The plan is to develop a manageable healthy habit each week that will carry through the new year. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #gethealthy.

Quite possibly the best news of the week for the healthy challengers: Corn is a whole-grain. And so popcorn is a whole-grain. Air-popped is best, and of course with minimal butter/oil on it (but sprinkle liberally with cinnamon or spices!), but yes, eat some air-popped popcorn for a snack, and you’ve fulfilled week 2′s challenge of eating your whole grains. But the challenge participants didn’t limit their grain selection to just corn — oatmeal played a big role, as did whole-wheat flours, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice and wheat berries. What was the best grain, or form of whole grains that you ate this week? After the jump, check out a round-up of our challenge participants’ blog posts about whole grain week.
